Truth Be Told (Blackbridge Security #4) by Marie James ~ Book Review


 Release Date: February 23

Lies ruin lives.

Ignacio Torres, the translator for Blackbridge Security, has told his fair share and then some.

He lied more than once to Tinley Holland when they were teens.

Told her he didn’t love her.

Told her he could live without her.

Told her what they shared didn’t mean a thing.

He’s lived with those lies, lived with the loss of her for over a decade.

What he didn’t expect was going home to help with a family matter only to discover Tinley has told the biggest lie of all.

Grab Your Copy Here:

I have been enjoying this series immensely and the character I have been enjoying the absolute most will unfortunately never get his own book, but I swear  Puff Daddy steals every scene he is in. Wren's African grey parrot "Puff Daddy" is hysterical, I not only laugh out loud with his antics I was gasping for breath in this book because I was laughing so hard!

Truth Be Told is Ignacio Torres' story, this is a second chance with your first love romance. 

You I'm sure have been told that lies will only come back to haunt you, or lies never pay, or some other analogy on why lying is bad. Well, Ignacio told the biggest lie to his high school sweetheart when he broke her heart. Heck he didn't break it, he decimated it. 

Ignacio has returned to his hometown due to his grandfather having a stroke and being on his deathbed. Now that he's back that lie not only has come back to haunt him he begins to wonder if he didn't tell the lie so many lives could have turned out differently. 

Tinley Holland was in love with Ignacio before he crushed her and now that he has returned she needs to protect not only her heart but that of those she loves as well. Tinley is a strong woman doing everything she can while caring for her very sick mother and raising her son Alex by herself.

Alex is a sweet kid that has a lot of crap going on and I really liked the way the author didn't sugar coat anything. They lived in a tough area and she showed what Alex went though to survive the neighborhood.

This has been my favorite read of the series so far. Again, it's because of the way the author showed the push and pull of emotions and hurt feelings, the way she showed the rawness of everything that went on, and because she didn't have the H&h hopping into bed as soon as they saw one another. I sooooo appreciated that, things needed to be worked through and not glossed over so kuddos to Marie James for showing us that Romances aren't just sunshine and rainbows sometimes they are tornadoes and hurricanes that you have to rebuild from.

If you enjoy second chance romance's I highly recommend this one to you.

Happy Reading!!!

Meet Marie James

Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
